This Christmas Lights Running Tour will see groups of 10 people running around London at its most festive time of the year.
While the route will remain the same, there are different paces available depending on the speed you are most comfortable with.
The group will meet at Trafalgar Square (near the fountains), home of London's iconic Christmas Tree.
From there, the group will fly through the streets of the capital and you'll be able to marvel at the famous lights of Carnaby Street, Regent Street, Trafalgar Square, Oxford Street, Paddington, Kensington Palace, Bond Street and many more places you may not be familiar with.
The tour will last about 2 hours and finishes at Notting Hill Station.
Each speed falls across different dates throughout the year, so if you can't find the one you're looking for then be sure to check out another date.
Walk-Running in a Winter Wonderland
This is for people comfortable mixing short intervals of gentle jogging with walking.

What do I need to bring with me?
